Watch: Sloth Gets Wings


Life is undoubtedly dangerous for sloths that decide they need to cross the road. Here's a three-toed sloth trying to do just that in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. 

Thankfully, it gets a hand, er wings.

  1. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and sloths are cool. I love the background sound of nature, in this case a subtropic rainforest.

  5. I have done this with a Gila monster, rattlesnakes, and a Desert Tortoise here in Arizona. If you don't, nasty people will purposely run them over.

  6. Aww. Hottie has a heart of gold. I was really hoping they weren't going to let him crawl out into the road (while they all took pictures).

  11. Yay! A post about my homecountry! Did you the hot guys legs? He's def a soccer player .. or ranger or something .. someone told him to use a belt to pick it up and the hot guy said "Dont worry, I know how to handle it" .. and he knew.

    Awww ... nice change from the rest of the stuff you see in Manuel Antonio (I love it but with all the tourists Im starting to dislike the area .. absolutely beautiful tho)
